Sourdough bread with spelt

The next bread I made with my sourdough became a bread with spelt. After i made this bread i didn't spent enough time or took enough care of my sourdough, it spends its day in sourdough heaven now ... I heard before, when baking with sourdough was most hyped, there are sourdough hotels, you can submit your sourdough to when you are away for a few days. Wonder if they have different standards of the rooms there? I mean, you don't want your sourdough to have to sleep in a room shared with others or with shared shower and toilet. I'll just start a new sourdough, and I've always got my wild yeast to look forward to use.

Sourdough bread with spelt

I used the same ingredients as in Leilas levain but replaced some of the strong bread flour with spelt flour.

10 g yeast
240 g of lukewarm water

500 g strong bread flour
340 g spelt flour
400 g sourdough
about 25 g salt

How to:
1. Crumble the yeast into a bowl and let it dissolve in the water. Add half of the flour and knead in a machine for about 10 minutes.
2. Add the sourdough, salt and the remaining flour. Knead the dough on low speed in a machine for 20 minutes.
3. Prover the dough in the bowl under a tea towel until doubled in size, in about two hours.
4. Preheat the oven to 250 degrees C.
5. Pour the dough on a floured surface of wood and fold the dough gently into a loaf. Do not work the dough, handle it with care so that no air bubbles lets out. Flour the bread and let it rise under a tea towel until doubled in size in about 1 ½ hours.
6. Turn out the bread on a baking sheet and set it in the oven. Throw in 1 cup of water on the oven floor to get a nice crust on the bread. Reduce heat to 200 degrees C and bake for 40-50 minutes
